About Lake Tobias
Our wildlife park is both a zoo and a functioning farm. Employees work the 300 acres of farmland to grow food that feeds the hoofed stock. Some of our animals roam freely throughout the park, such as chickens, peacocks, and guineas. Lake Tobias also offers a variety of shows and exhibitions designed to educate and entertain visitors. Patrons often enjoy getting a real-life glimpse of what it’s like to manage and sustain a large wildlife park.
Our Zoo Exhibits
Hundreds of animals reside along 50 acres of exhibits and displays at our wildlife park. These exhibits include African lions, American black bears, baboons, Bengal tigers, monkeys, ostriches, kangaroos, American alligators, pythons, tortoises, llamas, camels, alpacas, zebras, and more. The lions, bears, tigers, and baboons are housed in some of our most spacious, exciting, and recently renovated exhibits. The reptile and exotics building isn’t just home to snakes and lizards; it also houses many other animals such as critically-endangered tamarins, exotic marmosets, tropical birds, a sloth, lemurs, and a few surprises!
Must-See Zoo Attractions
The open-air Safari Tour transports visitors across 150 acres of rolling hills, pasture land, and wooded areas to witness many different animals moving freely. This excursion is a great opportunity for guests to see large animals up close.
The petting zoo allows visitors to feed and pet goats, alpacas, camels, and llamas. At the Reptiles & Exotics Facility, you can see eye-opening presentations on fascinating creatures and even touch an alligator if you dare. The feeding of alligators is one of our more popular attractions. This takes place at the outdoor alligator exhibit on Sundays at approximately 4 p.m., provided the alligators feel warm enough to feed.
We also offer other exciting attractions such as the Wild Days Weekend, Founder’s Day, Boo at the Zoo, and a Scavenger Hunt.
